Re: [Orekit Developers] Satellite Tracker demo application

Hello Thomas,

Let me introduce myself.

I have attached a paper I presented at the 4th ICATT in Madrid in 2010. I am very interested in the topic of orbit determination using orekit.

I have created a small webapp prototype of a satellite tracker that uses
orekit to propagate the satellite orbits.

It's basically a tutorial how to use Vaadin together with Spring and
JPA, and I wanted to something more interesting than just a simple CRUD

The result maybe also of interest to this community and can be found
here (Apache license): https://github.com/netomi/sat-tracker

To use it just type in the following:

   git clone git://github.com/netomi/sat-tracker.git
   mvn clean compile
   mvn jetty:run

After that, the application can be accessed at


There are already quite a bunch of similar applications available, but
none of them uses orekit ;-).

Any comments or feedback or ideas for more features is welcome.

btw. the orekit version I have used has some (local) changes:

  - make use of frames thread-safe
  - add support for ephemeris mode to TLEPropagator
